I think this item is Murano. Any views?

I agree.  Definitely not Whitefriars.  Look like Murano canes to me.

It doesn't even remotely look like Whitefriars... Has Murano written all over it... For the discerning collector???  ::)

This looks similar to something I picked up in the 90s. It has a La Fenice sticker which I think is a generic label. Canes are not quite Fratelli Toso. They look more like some in one of my Seguso weights.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

might be worth a bid just for the box, but on the other hand the User's ID kept private, a bidder upper
cheers Ray
